Human rights is one crucial aspects being prominently discussed these days. It is more critically conversed in the wake of growing atrocities against the historically deprived groups like dalits and tribals. Although the practice of ăUKPuntouchability ă┘ was abolished in 1950, it remains and is very much alive in India. The caste still operates as a defining condition in establishing marriages, social relations and access to employment, millions of Dalits and other former low-caste people remain behind in education, employment and access to wealth.

In recent years an increasing number of human rights organisations and bodies are coming to recognise untouchability and caste discrimination as a gross human rights violation. Dalit human rights has become an international issue and organisations like Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, Minority Rights Group and Anti-Slavery International are making Dalit Human Rights a priority issue and are concerned to raise the issue internationally in UN bodies, governments and the public-at-large.

This book covers the varied issues of human rights faced by dalits and tribals of India. It will prove useful for academics as well as for policy planners, administrators and social activists in the field.
